Adam Linder

Vexed Vista

from 27 to 31 January

Création  Music / Dance


Adam Linder is an Australian choreographer and dancer who lives in Berlin. Having worked with major contemporary ballet companies, he has developed extremely precise technique. His virtuosity has also led him to question the meaning of his work as a choreographer. In Vexed Vista, he explores the relationship between psychological tensions and abstraction. “With Vexed Vista, I want to talk about what’s hiding behind abstraction.” The offstage voice of “the consciousness hidden under abstraction” will lead the audience to wonder about their perceptions of the performance. What mental or physical “camouflage” makes it possible to make a connection between a score, bodies, light, sound, and the audience?

Accompanied by Douglas Letheren, a former Batsheva Dance Company dancer, and Frédéric Tardy (oboist), he raises the issue of the emotional value of the abstraction linking music and dance, on a stage turned into a lunar landscape by Shahryar Nashat, with lighting design by Jan Fedinger.
